Planning Ahead - Preparing for Departure
It’s easy to put off creating a “going away” file, but getting your affairs in order now, will allow you to live the rest of your life to the fullest. What better peace of mind than knowing that your loved ones will have all the necessary information to carry out your final wishes.

The Christian Education Committees of Community of Joy and Christ Lutheran joined together and presented a 3-week seminar that will help us focus on developing a plan to prepare for the end of life.

Pastor Kurt and Pastor Mary Beth added a wonderful spiritual component by discussing and providing information on a spiritual legacy and a bibliography of other resources.
